This week, partner Jerome Moroux had the opportunity to participate in the Trial Advocacy Program at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University.
The Trial Advocacy Program provides 3rd-year LSU Law students with tactical skills for trial proceedings. The program utilizes a “learn by doing” education to help simulate a real trial.
Students have the opportunity to role-play, practice, and receive critiques during the three-day program. They are able to practice performing direct and cross-examinations, arguing motions, and delivering opening and closing statements.
Students are recorded and review their performance with faculty, helping them focus on their verbal and non-verbal advocacy skills.
The program is taught by law professionals from all over the country, allowing the law students to learn from experienced litigators and make legal connections while doing so.
